What a great episode. All the devices and gadgets reviewed were quite extraordinary; especially that stereo component CD player that can record like a tape deck! So awesome, and today, it would be quite cheap to supply it with CD-Rs.
It was exciting to see the unveiling of the Game Gear, and the productivity applications for the Game Boy were genius.
I never new Nolan Bushnell worked at Commodore. What an interesting coincidence that Jack Tramiel eventually went to Atari, and Nolan Bushnell to Commodore. Trading places :)
